This 19th-century Grade II listed cottage is in a wonderfully secluded location boasting access to a private beach and is perfectly situated to explore Lyme Regis and the rugged coastline in both directions.
Found within the grounds of an exclusive estate in Rousdon, this 19th-century, Grade II-listed property is a peaceful retreat for those looking to escape the crowds for a while. Surrounded by extensive grounds and countryside to explore, solo breaks and romantic getaways will be topped off with long walks in the fresh air and days spent on the estate’s private beach. For a tasty start to the day, there is a village bakery 0.5 miles away.
In an open-plan design, the property marries both modern touches with traditional comforts to create a welcoming space. For relaxed mornings and early evenings, the lounge’s sofa and armchair invite you to unwind, whilst the addition of a TV offers extra entertainment. For foodie feasts, the kitchen is at the far end of the property and is well-provisioned with appliances and utensils, including oven and dishwasher. Take your meals around the dining table for two and share anecdotes from the day. As well as the living areas, the property has a bathroom with walk-in shower and heated towel rail. When you are ready to call it a day, a double bedroom awaits. Outside, a small, secluded garden can be accessed across the courtyard through a gate and has both a terrace and lawn.
With so much on offer on-site, it’ll be difficult to leave your haven. That said, there are number of attractions nearby. 3.5 miles from Lyme Regis, the Peal of Dorset, you can look forward to a lively atmosphere as visitors flock to beach hut-lined sea fronts. Shops and eateries can be found in Lyme Regis, Axmouth (3.5 miles) and Seaton (5 miles). For some of the best views in the county, head to the famous Golden Cap, 12 miles away, and snap a picture or two.
